Publishing

Dear Colleagues:

Professor Magary asks a pertinent and frightening question: What is
happening to academic publishing? In looking for a publisher of a book
of interviews of American Shakespearean actors, I have discovered that
Univ. of California Press no longer publishes scholarly books on drama
or literary topics. I guess such books don't sell well enough to be
worthwhile for that erstwhile prestigious academic press. The UCP's web
site no longer lists such topics, not is there a contact person listed
for them.  Such developments bode ill, I fear, for our and related
professions.

Regards,
Michael Shurgot
